    Dan Osborne has one ambition in life. He wants to be a permanent park ranger in Yellowstone National Park, a place where his family roots run deep. He'll do just about anything to make his dream a reality. When a pretty tourist tells him an incredible story about his ancestors, his dreams might be realized sooner than he hoped. Jana Evans' best friend traveled back in time for true love. Not only is a weathered diary proof that she survived, so is the handsome park ranger standing before Jana now.

    Story

    Even though this was book five in the series, I think it fits better as book two. I tried reading the actual second book but was not feeling the lead guy. I decided to skip to this book as it happens shortly after the first one ends. And this is Jana's story, which I was really interested in reading.

    I really liked the time travel elements in this story. Sometimes I get iffy on that theme, but I totally enjoyed the way it was used in this book and the first. Maybe it was most interesting to me because I am not familiar with the history of Yellowstone. I loved hearing about the time period and challenges faced.

    I really liked Jana and her spunky, loyal personality! She goes above and beyond for a friend. I like that she is not a pushover and takes time to show her anger after the deception. She took a while to forgive and really made him work to regain her trust and affections.

    Dan is actually a great character, once you get past his mistakes, and he does work to atone. He is young and made a huge error in judgement, but that is what leads to him and Jana getting back together. Without that deception there would be no story. I liked that he was another rugged wilderness man. Yummy take charge fella!

    There is a little bit of steam, not full on erotic detail, but smexy enough to get a gal warm!! You might need to fan your face!! A little bit of spice to heat up the romance!!

    This is a mixed narrative that swaps between the two lead characters. I enjoy getting both sides of the romance, it really makes it a fuller story. There were a few spots that felt redundant because a conversation was worded almost the same as when the characters was thinking about things. It is a picky thing that gets to me as a reader, if they thought it out in detail they do not have to have the same detail in a conversation.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Alexandra Haag. She does a great job with the voices and keeping them distinct. She has a great pace for the read, adding energy to action scenes making them even more dramatic. She really fits the story and makes it come to life.

    Overall, the story is really great and very involved. The pace is great and moves smoothly through the story. Really terrific characters who are engaging and real. I was totally taken by the book from beginning to end. Warning, have tissues handy, if you are emotional like myself, you will need them! Kudos on great storytelling that had me sobbing and laughing.

    In the end I am good with doing book one and book five in the series. They are the most connected stories and had the great time travel angle. I read the blurbs on the other books and they are tenuous connections at best. I am usually the kind of person who must read every book in a series, but I am good with just these two. The books are most likely as well crafted as the two I read, but the stories just do not grab me, but check them out, cause they might appeal to you as a reader! If not book 1 and 5 work well as a duology!

    Story

    I enjoyed this read, but there were flaws along the way. It is a nice concept, but the story feels slow mid-way through. The reason for he need of protection seems to be forgotten, often. Then suddenly the danger pops up again.

    Reese is sweet, too sweet at times. I generally like her, it's just the pageant girl stuff. She is also shockingly naive at times. Oh, and I am not even going to get into the TSTL(too stupid to live) moments at the end.

    Blake tends to run hot and cold, it was hard to really get a bead on him. I just kept thinking he was acting like a jerk, why would she like him? He does mellow out towards the end, but you miss a lot of it because the story fast forwards.

    It is a mixed narrative, giving both leads POV, which kind of put you in their shoes. It goes a long way for keeping Blake out of my doghouse.

    This romance is geared more for the clean readers. That is right kids, no ding ding, until there is a wedding ring. Then the bedroom door is shut in your naughty face!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Lesley Ann Fogle, who does a great job. She does a Southern twang on Reese that I was not always fond of. It made her feel whiny. Other than that, she has a great pace and tone throughout the read. She makes it a comfortable listen, after you get used to that sugar sweet accent.

    Overall, I enjoyed this read and would be interested to see what happens with the rest of the series. I think the others are his brothers. Could be intriguing reads.

    Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative Duke Marlow has a new mission: find, interrogate and possibly eliminate the target - Mercy Deluca. He knows looks can be deceiving, but it's hard to believe the beautifully quirky woman running around in a superhero t-shirt is a viable threat. The sexy little biomedical engineer quickly proves she is more than he bargained for and Intel has it all wrong - she's not the enemy. Far from it. Intel also forgot to mention one vital piece of information - she's Duke's mate.

    Story

    I read the Immortal Ops series a few years ago, well the first few books. I thought I would be fine reading this one as it is a side series, I really should have read the remaining books in the other series first. There are spoilers here if you have not read them.

    This is the other team that does basically the same work as Immortal Ops. just more born shifters here. Plus these guys have been around much longer. They have a great dynamic and banter as a team. I can not wait to read all of them finding mates.

    This story, from what I can tell, pieces together things after the last I-Ops events. Even though this is a novella, the world building is great, well if you are familiar with the other series. This does catch things up nicely, as I said it was a few years ago and this give a slight refresher of events. I kind of like this team better, they have more of a playfulness about them.

    Duke is one of my favorites right off the bat! I love the he is a Luddite and is matched with a techie genius!! Gotta love opposites attracting! Mercy is very like-able and it is fun trying to follow her rambling when nervous. There are a few times when it seems too much, she just becomes a caricature of a nerdy girl.

    Yummy smexy time!! Oh yeah!! The steam is great, could have used more, but it is a short read. It fits in with the whole true mates insta lust/love theme of the series. I have no problem with that, it is quite common in paranormal reads. It cuts down on too much chit chat before the steamy action.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Mason Lloyd, who is delicious!! He as several accents to tackle, doing a great job of keeping them distinct and consistent. His pace is swift, which I typically love, but had to slow down on the accents, it was tough to clearly get the words when listening at warp speed. He is totally understandable and delightful at normal listening speed.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book and can not wait to read the rest of the team. The books are very connected to the other series, so I do suggest reading those first. It will help you understand the world, events and the characters. Too bad the first 4 are only in ebook. Fingers crossed audio is on the way soon, I cold use a refresher listen myself.

    Story

    I am not always a fan of New Adult reads. The characters tend to be immature and annoy me. This story fits that category for me.

    The writing is oddly stilted and feels awkward. It just did not flow in my opinion. Plenty of people loved this book, so maybe it just isn't my cup of tea.

    The steam is really hawt and smexy. It happens super quick, more of a lust story than a lovefest.

    The narrative is a mixed bag going between the two leads. Mia is kind of annoying with her lack of care for her situation. She also acts very much her youthful age. Dominic is very controlling and definitely wolfie. It just felt like a strange dynamic.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Meghan Kelly, who was wonderful and kept me listen long after I lost interest. She has a great energy in the read which keeps the story moving at a swift pace. I always enjoy her tone, it is happiness to my ears.

    This is a serial, which also annoyed me. I prefer my story all in one shot. I am not really interested in reading the rest of the story. It was intriguing, but just not worth it for me in the long run.

    Story

    This is a really tough call, this rating is more for the story than the audiobook. It really was not the right pairing. I do not even know how to rate the read, he isn't awful, just the wrong choice.

    Oh my, this is a very, very, very naughty book!! Holy hawt and sweaty smexy time!! this is what most of the book is centered around. What did you expect she was bout at a submissive auction and this is the way she spends the week! Duh, you should not be disappointed by the steam. Hell yes, that is seriously a pantie dropping read!! Do not expect much down time, you will want to have B.O.B. handy, access to you fella or an ice bath at the ready! DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF READING THIS IN PUBLIC!!!

    The story is thin, but not anorexic. It has a healthy dose of exposition here and there. Not a romance, per se, but not without feelings. I enjoyed getting into their heads and understanding more about the lifestyle and the overall draw.

    This is a mixed narrative, going between the POV of the two leads. It puts many things in perspective. This also outlines exactly how differently men and women perceive situations. The whole "kidnapping" was way over blown by Gia, how did she seriously not know.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Edo De Angelis, who did the best he could. Here is where my major issues with this book crop up. When casting the voice of a narrator for you Russian character based novel, it is a very bad idea to go with a guy with a thick Latin accent. Do not get me wrong, his read is delicious, just not for this book. It is very off putting in the narrative and difficult to understand at first. Your ears get used to him, but it is still very wrong for the book. He does very well with the dialogue, slipping into terrific character accents. I wish he had been able to sustain it throughout the read for the narrative portions as well. I would love to hear him read some sexy Latin books, but not this Russian steamfest.

    It is a coin toss if I will read or listen to the next book. I noticed it has the same narrator, which does not bode well. I did enjoy the smexy story, so I want to know what next, but I may just have to go with the ebook on this one.

    This is a great contempo romance read. I really enjoyed the story and seeing them come together. Lots of granola crunchy planet saving stuff, fits because of her job.

    Harmony is sassy and funny. I loved the banter with Rick. He is going through some things himself. I enjoyed seeing them dance around each other. The narrative is mixed, easily transitioning between the two POV. This helps to understand their motives and emotions better.

    The story isn't anything amazing, however, it was thoroughly entertaining. There is something immensely like-able about the writing.

    The bedroom door is open, just naughty enough to make you blush. Don't expect huge detail in the smexy scenes. They give steam but not volcanic.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Wendy Rich Stetson, who is a delightful new voice to me. I enjoyed her pace and the energy she gives the read. She has a great voice for the guys and the gals, not trying to stretch things too far. This is a case where the voice is a true compliment to the story. I will be looking for more of her reads down the road.

    All in all this was a great experience, really hit the spot. It does a great job of getting you interested in the next book in the series. I definitely want to know about younger brother Jake!

    Confessions of a Transylvanian is a one-of-a-kind, backstage look at the greatest cult movie phenomenon of all time - the live Rocky Horror Picture Show - told by those who lived it. The highest-rated Rocky Horror book on the market, Confessions is a moving snapshot of life in a Rocky Horror cast that captures the grit, language and teenage angst of a group of fishnet-clad performers as they explore a world where the only rule was: Don't dream it. Be it.

    Story

    First off, shut up and sit down, if you have a problem with cursing, ya better pick another f*cking book!

    To say I loved this book is an understatement!! I grew up in another section of Florida and several years later, but boy do I wish I could have been a part of this! Listening to the adventures of the Wild and Untamed Things, brought happy tears to my eyes. I am a theatre gal from way back, so I know how being in a cast becomes a family. To be a part of something so special, is truly a joy.

    As is the case with audiobooks read by the author, I feel like I am one of the gang, in a totally non stalker groupie sort of way! Listening to all the backstage mishaps and drama was a thrill. I feel like I have come to know Kevin, Russ, Donnie, Kenny, Boyd, Sunday, Tracey, Andrea, MarK, Iris, Tony, Felicia, Storme and Ron. So many others popped up, but these are the ones that stick in my head.

    You get to see, Jack, wink wink, grow up and become a man through his time with the cast. He went from a fan to true part of the show. It was a treat hearing all the backstage insider secrets.

    He is also wonderful at explaining, to the uninitiated, why Rocky Horror is such a cult favorite. Why this live experience can mean so much to fans. It is lightning in a bottle, you just hope for a glimpse if not a chance to touch it. It says it is okay to be who you are and welcomes all comers. Don't just dream it, be it!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Kevin (Jack) Theis, who is fabulous. His pace is brisk, so if you can't keep up ya better slow it down a notch on the speed settings. You really do not want to miss a thing. This is one of the cases where I wholeheartedly endorse the author reading the material. Nobody else could have given the enthusiastic and energetic read. It felt like we were old friends chatting and catching up on old times. Heck, I feel like we are pals after spending 11 and a half hours with him. Count me in for the next reunion! LOL

    This is a must listen/read for any Rocky fan. You will feel that love and energy all over again. This is at times hilarious and pinpoint. To think these kids were only 16ish and the lessons they taught each other. The understudies section was particularly wonderful. To be in that position and step down, even for one night a month, is huge!

    While I adored the audio, I am afraid I missed out on things that would be in the print. I am going to scope out the ebook and see if there are photos, I need faces to go with these stories. I would recommend getting both, because this really was a delightful listen! (rockyconfessions(dot)com> get your extras fix at the website!)

    This is a short read with same seriously smexy wallop! I would love to see this expand to a series. For such a short read you get a nice chunk of world and character development.

    It is a mixed narrative, giving POV for both Cyan and Veryr. I love that she is a curvy girl, but owns her sexiness. Veryr is deliciously Alpha! I love the banter between the two!

    This short read delivers on the smut! A real pantie soaker!!! Oh yesh!!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Stormy Monroe, who does a nice job, when you speed up the read. If you listen at normal speed there are weird pauses and it is painfully slow. Punch things up to a double time and it is an enjoyable read. She has a great tone and energy, just needs to speed things up.

    These smutty shorts, are really a serial in disguise. I really enjoyed them, so I am not overly upset about it. It was a trick though to get me invested and then I had to read it in sections.

    This is the first book in a very promising series. Great concept and a really engaging story-line.I have enjoyed the books in ebook, so I thought to revisit in audio.

    Ezzy is really sweet and Buzz is just delicious!! An owl and a bear make a very unique match. I am intrigued by the idea that they do not share their animals until just before the match is solidified. What other unique pairing can occur!

    I also liked the side romance of Ezzy's best friend Krisia. It could have used a bit of steam though. I expect the future will be very interesting for this pair of BFF ad their mates!

    This is a mixed narrative, giving over the POV to each of the main characters s well as the best friend and her mate.It was great getting into their heads.Really makes for a more engaging story.

    It was a new take on shifters for me, which is rare cause I read a lot of paranormal. I like the twists and can not wait to see what happens next in the series. I have been reading them for the last year, and really have gotten to know the residents of the Crossroads and the shifters who come there looking for love.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Kellie Kamryn, who has been hit and miss for me in the past. I like her voice and enjoy her read. The issue is the quality of the productions. She either sounds like she is in a cave or has a white noise in the background. It is annoying, but after a little bit you get used to things, I hope as she gains more experience she invests in some quality equipment. I want to enjoy the read and her performance, the production really keeps that from happening!

    There could have been a bit more steam but what there was was really hot and heavy!! Open bedroom door, with enough detail to get you hot and bothered.

    Loads of story going on and nicely paced. There was so much going on in this story, it really should have been longer with more detail. Things are very abbreviated.

    A quick and enjoyable read!

    Smutty fans of Mina Carter may be a touch disappointed, there isn't a lot of smexy steam here. This is more geared towards the Urban Fantasy crowd. Loads of story, building characters and fleshing out a fairly detailed plot. I enjoyed all the intrigue and suspense.

    Never fear, there is at least one hawt bedroom scene, but it is more than 75% through the book. So, if you are looking for one of her bedroom reads, this isn't going to work for you! The smexy time is great and plenty detailed, it just isn't the whole point of the book.

    This is a mixed narrative, mainly between four characters, giving very different points of view. Most of the time we have Lily and Jack, the leads in this book. They have a great dynamic and I love seeing that sweet Lily has a real backbone! The rest of the time we have Darce and Antonia giving their thoughts. Antonia is a great character and you really see more of what is happening in the facility through her eyes.

    I have to say in the book, the ladies owned it! They were seriously kickbutt! I love Lily's sassy snarky comments. Antonia isn't as fun but she makes up for it in attitude! The are a serious handful for their men!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Emily Beresford, who is always a delight. I love her energy throughout the read. She infuses the words with emotion and adds depth to the story. I enjoyed her tone on the men's voices, appreciating that she doesn't take it too far. I hope she stays with the series.

    I am beyond thrilled to see this author stepping into audio!! I can not wait for all her books to be released!! I will have some seriously happy ears.

    Miranda Austin's personal assistant, Patrick Dove, knows just how to please her - professionally and personally. After a particularly stressful meeting, Patrick offers to whisk her away for an erotic break - and to relieve her from being in control. She may be in charge in the business world, but in the bedroom he's the one calling the shots....

    Story

    The great thing about the Spice Briefs, they are such naughty reads with just enough story to make them enjoyable. I love these hawt yummy quickies. They are all about stripping the story down to the bare minimum and amping up the smexy scenes.

    This is a yummy read where the personal assistant takes over outside of the office. Let me tell you the build to the sexing is enough to make you lose your panties!! This man really knows how to get a girl's engine revved!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Priscilla Carson, who has a charming British Accent. It was a pleasure to listen to her read. Great quality in her tone and plenty of energy at all the right moments. I want to find more of her reads, for sure!
